Beach volleyball: Watch England vs Scotland LIVE on the BBC

Beach volleyball: Watch England vs Scotland LIVE on the BBC

Daisy Mumby and Jess Grimson's group stage clash against home nation rivals Scotland will be broadcast live on the BBC tonight.

Team DJ started their Commonwealth Games campaign strongly with a 2-0 (21-10; 21-6) win over The Solomon Islands on Sunday, 31st July. 

If they beat Scottish pair Lynne Beattie and Mel Coutts, they will secure their place in the quarter-finals. Good luck Daisy and Jess!

Cheer them on from home by tuning into coverage from 7.05pm via the BBC. First serve is at 8pm. 

Team DJ's final Pool C match is against 2018 bronze medalists Vanuatu on Thursday, 4th August.

Live coverage

We share the Volleyball Family's frustration that not all of England's matches have been broadcast live. 

In conversation with the BBC, we strongly expressed this disappointment and were told in response that the BBC is endeavouring to show as much of the Commonwealth Games coverage as possible via BBC TV and up to 11 streams on BBC iPlayer and BBC Sport online. They said that, due to capacity reasons, difficult decisions have to be made about which sports to show live as they don’t that the capability to show everything.

With a number of major games coming up, we are hopeful of more coverage.

Volleyball England does not have the rights to broadcast matches, but we have been sharing live updates via our Instagram Stories during each England match and we will continue to do so for the remainder of the tournament. You can also track the live scores and stats via the Birmingham 2022 results page
